    Trying to get into Overwatch and it keeps saying it’s having a problem authenticating Xbox Live. @XboxSupport

  • Dreamer338 ET MAGA (@Dreamer338) reported

    @BlizzardWatch yea lots of people use aimbots to play overwatch because they have no level of human error in aiming. that was my experience; lots of people cheat in video games. especially on the internet.

  • ElderGodLoki Hunter Jones (@ElderGodLoki) reported

    As a Wrecking Ball (Hammond) main, I am SO sorry for everyone playing competitive last night on Xbox. I knew that something really weird was going on, but I had NO idea that I was the issue 😭 #overwatch

  • SomniumEU Somnium🐝 (@SomniumEU) reported

    I’d really like to understand why grown men make smurf accounts at diamond/masters just to stack and throw games. Then people wonder why Overwatch is a mostly dead game. Blizzard can change balancing and add gameplay features all they want but they won’t fix it’s retarded players

  • TheAnimeJoker TheAnimeJoker (@TheAnimeJoker) reported

    @XboxSupport All i wanted to do was play overwatch everytime i pressed A it said please sign in to xbox live yet i was in a party

  • OMGitsGrant_ Grant Foster (@OMGitsGrant_) reported

    @Complibur @DayZ I think xbox is just acting retarded rn. Its saying I can’t sign in and I’ve tried playing overwatch, DayZ, Rainbow, and heck even Titanfall 2 which never has had issues with servers. It’s on Xbox’s end.

  • GI_TYYouTube1 SuperTy16 (@GI_TYYouTube1) reported

    @PlayOverwatch European competitive servers are throwing out people with “unexpected server error” messages left, right and center! Overwatch, EXPLAIN!

  • OKellyrez Kelly (@OKellyrez) reported

    No internet issues but mainly overwatch was being super framey. Hopefully a restart will help and I can figure out all the things and have a proper stream soon(TM).

  • Jack_Ridsdale Jack Ridsdale (@Jack_Ridsdale) reported

    I know its gauche to rip on Overwatch but, holy crap, Comp Deathmatch is complete trash. An utterly broken, zero fun game mode that Blizz has decided to double down on. Would actually rather play fortnut

  • Alex27327426 Alex (@Alex27327426) reported

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN hi, I have yet another problem. I have an xbox one and overwatch stopped working completely, it always says that I have the trial version but it’s on a disc. And i have deleted it time after time still to no use it still says that it’s a trial version.

  • Dragoneyes2510 DragonEyes (@Dragoneyes2510) reported

  • Kster91 Karl 🐢 (@Kster91) reported

    Overwatch's Wrecking Ball (AKA Hammond, because that's a terrible name 🙄) has been disabled on Xbox after yesterday's update! he's apparently causing the game to crash!

  • madingdingg You (@madingdingg) reported

  • Celestial_Vi Vi⚜️ (@Celestial_Vi) reported

    @BlizzardCS overwatch is crashing a LOT for people on xbox one since the new baptiste themed update, at least 1 or 2 are getting kicked out of comp games every single match, fix it please!

  • Jamie78166851 Jamie (@Jamie78166851) reported

  • g_willan gwillan (@g_willan) reported

    @LetsKillPing I guess don't trust Killping if you are looking for customer service. And definitely don't expect anything from their refund policy. #Overwatch @LeagueOfLegends @DOTA2

  • nickeedee1 Nickeedee🏳️‍🌈 (@nickeedee1) reported

    Man I am so hardcore split on either doing Overwatch or more Fallout 76 tonight (I might have a Fallout problem). Will let you all know closer to stream time!

  • jvjr123 Joey Vargas Jr. 🥀 (@jvjr123) reported

    @BlizzardCS FIX YOUR GAME i can’t even get through a normal game of overwatch without wrecking ***** ult crashing my game

  • FitriExtreme IWAE ! WAGA MAO ! (@FitriExtreme) reported

    Dk if it’s my network or Overwatch server is kinda lagging

  • itsahmedyall ahmed (@itsahmedyall) reported

    Unpopular Overwatch opinion: Blizzard should not release hero 31, specially if the rumor that the hero is a tank is true. It seems that Blizzard’s way to counter their GOATs issue is to constantly make new heroes with new abilities to stop it which CLEARLY doesn’t work 1/3

  • AngryFawnOW AngryFawn (@AngryFawnOW) reported

    @BlizzardCS fix overwatch for console you trashcans it’s been a day maybe 2 already and people have lost so much sr

  • Cobh_xbl Cobh (@Cobh_xbl) reported

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN @PlayOverwatch @BlizzardCS fix overwatch on Xbox, or disable Hammond. Every time he ults two people on the enemy team have their game crashed

  • The_ViperUS Dared ViperZ (@The_ViperUS) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent fix Overwatch the dumb wrecking ball thing is a joke Fix it

  • EmilyKrumlinde QueenE (@EmilyKrumlinde) reported

    So virgin media is confirming loss of connection at my postcode and that an estimated fix is at 19.05 today... so no more overwatch and over 100SR down from disconnects. LOVE IT! IT'S NOT LIKE I'VE BEEN WORKING MY ASS OFF TO GET BACK TO MASTERS OR ANYTHING. 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃

  • JustAZ_ myst (@JustAZ_) reported

    what can i play now that terraria broke my heart and i cant login to overwatch ;-;

  • Marexn Marexn (@Marexn) reported

    @RequiemWings_AE Overwatch has this system where you cannot see the exact player, most likely for harassment policies they've got in place for the fear that the person banned will be getting some shit. But i don't see a problem with it either way, guess the pro is just that now you know.

  • butters_pc Jack (@butters_pc) reported

    @BernieSanders @IATSE @GameWorkers bernie do you think role queue should have been added in overwatch by now, i mean the community is dwindling and most of them say that a lackluster competitive mode with toxic dps OTPs is the reason they left, and putting in a role queue really solves that problem

  • JazzyFroggo Angel and 304 others (@JazzyFroggo) reported

    @_Choragic Both are incredibly stupid. Decay is worth it if overwatch doesn’t fix their shit

  • Im_Ruka Ruka (@Im_Ruka) reported

    I ******* love overwatch like ball glitch that freezes the ******* game

  • norasuko_ Norasuko🔞 (@norasuko_) reported

    @Kai_Kazegami @MadamLaunch @KinkJimmy @Dentolsfm In Overwatch and Frozen's case it was a problem with search results for sure. The amount of SFM porn on those franchises was such it was getting in the way of the name getting first results on Google. It's rare to see companies other than Nintendo going against fanart like that.

  • iner_relico45 iner relico45 (@iner_relico45) reported

    @BlizzardCS currently there is a bug on Xbox for overwatch where if you use Hammonds alt the game freezes and you disconnect I've lost 100+ Sr because of this

  • FloydThePigTTV FloydThePig (@FloydThePigTTV) reported

    @RockLeeSmile Yeah the problem when i had with overwatch and just overwatch was a driver i just downgraded to the last version and used that but updating again still worked.

  • VexxedThorn Ɨ𝖟𝖟ɏ 😈 (@VexxedThorn) reported

    i genuinely thought my friends were getting a ddos in Comp; needless to say...a ******* hamster crashed their game. it was pretty upsetting to have our tanks disappear. #Overwatch

  • ZIONX007xTTV ZIONX007 (@ZIONX007xTTV) reported

    @Respawn fix overwatch you dweebs

  • H0TROD86 Joshua Blankenship (@H0TROD86) reported

    @blooddust_OW Overwatch just sucks anymore, and new heros, and balance changes aren't gonna fix it. The game is a shell of what it was.

  • QueenVeronicaOW Veronica (@QueenVeronicaOW) reported

    @Lyna_OW @Nemo_oce Lyna in every Eu game “****** widow broken hero good job blizzard. Of course they have a ****** Orisa nerf suck! I’m just hooking cause it’s broken. Get off Moira it’s a shit hero. Delete brig.If I was in charge of overwatch this game would be so much better”

  • AFKdubstep AFK (@AFKdubstep) reported

    Holy shit McCree is broken in Overwatch rn 😂😂😂 im gonna be top 500 if they don’t nerf this in a couple days

  • AFKdubstep AFK (@AFKdubstep) reported

    Holy shit McCree is broken in Overwatch rn 😂😂😂 im gonna be too 500 if they don’t nerf this in a couple days

  • ImNotAlim ~alim~ (@ImNotAlim) reported

    I don't care what anyone says 90% of the reason people say Overwatch is bad, is because of the players. Yeah okay there are a couple things here and there they can fix but that's just the basics. It all comes down to the players especially in comp. People ruin Overwatch.

  • Brandon_J225 B.😈 (@Brandon_J225) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent plz fix overwatch

  • REAkagainz Rea (@REAkagainz) reported

    Omg, did you just delete your fix your servers Overwatch video. I was about to reply and say I LOVE YOUR VOICE
